3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde dorée claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Plutôt douce, légèrement surette et fruitée, un rien vinaigrée, un rien amère. Ou comment une blonde prend des allures de vieille brune!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Bottle @ home. Clear yellow to golden color, small a bit soapy white head. Aroma is a bit sourish, not what I would suspect from a Belgian blond. It also has a sourish flavor comvined with lightly leaves and sourish-bitter fruitpeel. Average body, average carbonation. No, don’t think this is intended. I’m guessing it has some kind of infection.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 20/I/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 23/IX/13 (smudged ink, not sure) (2013-83)
Clear pale yellow beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: citrus, lemony, very chemical, nail polish remover, paint, bit grassy, hay. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: very chemical, paint, unpleasant bitterness, rubber, some citrus, soapy. Aftertaste: bitter, grassy, alcohol coming through (with only 6.5%?), chemical again, something off (rotten?). No, this is not a good beer...

Not entirely sure why this one was opened or from whom but I am guessing that it was Travlr’s (Gene’s) & that it didn’t fit into his suitcase. Thx. Cute fox on the label. 33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2013. Pale golden with a white head. Smells sweet, floral, citrus, touch artificial, hay. Taste is bitter, BE yeast, citrus, once again tad artifical, cleaning agent, hay, some sweetness, floral, some bitterness & esters in the back. Medium, light yeasty body. Okay.
